"Warped" as written by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, David Navarro and Michael 'flea' Balzary....
My tendency
For dependency
Is offending me
It's upending me
I'm pretending see
To be strong and free
From my dependency
It's warping me

So much love
So rare to dare
Afraid of
Ever being there
Take me home
I need repair
Take me please
To anywhere

Descend
All the way

Descended from
Demented men
Struggle with
The art of zen
Please don't look
Too close at me
You might not like
What you see

Descend
All the way

Everyday, warped and scared
Of being there

Craving
Sends me crawling oh
Beg for mercy
Does it show
A vacancy
That's full of holes
Hold me please
I'm feeling cold

Descend
All the way

Everyday, warped and scared
Of being there

    General CommentDuring thi album Anthony started to do drugs again. For a long time he kept it a secret from everyone he knew. This song is a cry for help. For example:

    So much love
    So rare to dare
    Afraid of
    Ever being there
    Take me home
    I need repair
    Take me please
    To anywhere

    See?


    Please don’t look
    Too close at me
    You might not like
    What you see

    That line suggests he doesn't really want to be found out. But he still wants help.

    General Commenti think its bout drugs cuz he "decends all the way" meaning coming down from his high, and this sums it up:

    Night craving
    Sends me crawling
    Beg for mercy oh
    Does it show
    A vacancy
    That’s full of holes
    Hold me please
    I’m feeling cold

    General Commentits definately about drugs... thats what was primarily on the bands minds at the time they wrote one hot minute, cos John had done too many, and the rest of them were feeling really down about it... loads of the OHM songs are about drugs or tragedies...
    And yeah, the kiss in the video IS sexy...

    General Commentfinding a replacement for John also made anthony depressed because it reminds him of Hillel... anthony had been hurt too many times by the effects of heroine (Hillel, John) and he just wants to stop but he doesnt think hes strong enough and hes embarrassed and ashamed

    General CommentThe songs about ak's drug addiction, how it affects him and about hiding it from everyone. It had nothing to do with John or Hillel.
    It's all in his book, which everyone should read, by the way.
